It’s a shawlette

Hey, look, I finished something!

Zetor_071209It’s a tiny little shawl! It’s the most unnecessary piece of knitting this side of the Mississippi! But I sort of like it and will wear it as a cool-weather scarf (we will ignore the fact that my climate does not sport a lot of “cool” weather — more hot or cold. But there are a few precious days that are “cool,” you know?)

The tatted bookmarks are reproducing, but there seem to be some problems during meiosis or subsequent mitosis — the original template is good, but the outcome is a little messed up. I’m sure it could have nothing to do with the supreme creator-ess’s lack of attention, could it?

Here they are, attempting to understand Wetlands, which is a worthy goal.  I should probably learn to take better pictures of the tatting, all the pictures I’ve done have been dreadful.

There’s another tatted pride snowflake floating around here somewhere too…


About sayingthings

K lives in the US with her man and kiddos, knits, cans, dehydrates, bakes bread, (but doesn't cook regular food, particularly), crochets, spins, gardens, studies for a degree that never seems to end, and um, works. Sometimes she wastes time online. Also -- and family, she's looking at you here -- sometimes she swears and says things you might not agree with. But she still loves you.

    Its a pretty little shawl! And now you can bookmark all the really interesting parts of your book with elegance! Tell me, does a wetlands childhood affect its relationships?

  2. Small shawls are the perfect thing to protect a neck from the draft of air conditioning. One is always in my purse for the office, grocery stores and other places that are just too cold during the summer months. Love the colors in your shawl!
